For 11 members of the Lyons Midget Girls softball team the 2019 All-Star season ended just like it did in 2018 with a state championship victory. The only difference is last year eight of them did it as Mites facing a pitching machine and this summer they did it against live pitching including against a Douglas- Coffee team which had a pitcher who threw from the circle at high velocity. However, that didn’t keep these girls from pulling out a 5-3 victory in the championship game.
Emerson Powell went 1-for-2 at the plate, Aniston Powell 0-for-2 with a walk and a run scored, Brinley Miller 1-for-3 with a double and a run scored, Shay Stringer 2-for-3 with a run scored, Natalie Quintero 0-for-1 with two walks and a run scored, Laura Zamorano 0-for-1 with two walks and a run scored, Maddie Joyner 2-for-3 with a double,
Casey Cantwell pitched six innings and allowed four hits and three walk
Lyons scored two runs in the second inning- Natalie and Laura both touched home. Aniston scored in the third and Brinley and Shay scored in the fifth. Joyner drove in two runs and Stringer one and the final two Lyons runs scored on pass balls.
